Repair Time for My T@B 400

Seeking insurance approval for repairing my T@B from the road damage sustained from metal falling off a passing semi in Nevada has proven to be more complicated than I expected. I was able to safely pull off the freeway at a rest stop immediately after the impact and called my insurance agent. I was assured that the repairs would be covered and because the damage was not interfering with my use of the trailer, I could wait to have the repairs done when I returned to Michigan for the summer.

As soon as I returned to Michigan, I called my insurance agent to get the approval processed. I had to wait for an insurance adjuster to make an appointment to come out for the inspection. I waited a week for that to happen. When I finally received the call, I was told that they had no pricing data on my model of trailer and that they would like me to take it to my dealership and have them provide a quote. I could have done that two weeks earlier!

I made an appointment with General RV in Wayland, Michigan to have my trailer looked at and have a quote prepared. They were unable to get me in for several days. It took me an hour and a half to pull my trailer to them, have them take pictures and measurements and then I pulled my trailer back across the state to wait for all the paperwork to clear. Fortunately, I’m stationed with family and am enjoying time with my son, daughter-in-law, and granddaughters. I can afford to be patient.
